Hi - I'm using FCP 10.3 and I rated a few clips as favorite and rejected, then married the good audio to the video and made compound clips. The ratings I applied are gone once the compound clip is created (or a synced clip for that matter).
Is there a way to retain my ratings from my original library source media, after converting to compound clips?
Or maybe a way to copy/paste the ratings from one to the other?
The ratings on the original clips that live INSIDE the Compound or Sync are still there.
The Compound or Sync, when you create them, are no, independent clips, and have nothing, no ratings, nothing.
It is very, very easy to apply a Favorite or Rejected or Keyword to a Compound or Sync clip the moment you create it.
But no, they do not "inherit" anything from the clips that they contain, because if you had clips with different ratings, keywords, etc, how would it know which to use?
I think I may have communicated my intent ambiguously. I would like to be able to copy/paste the IN and OUT points of a range in the library or timeline. So Cmd-C would copy the timecode on both ends, ready to paste. Not a big deal, but maybe something to put in FCP's suggestion box.
Well, I mistakenly applied my ratings to source clips in the library, and then converted those rated clips to compound clips. Once this was done, the ratings were removed from the compound clip. I should have made the compound clips in the library and THEN applied ratings.
I want to be able to select my "favorite" rated ranges for insertion into timeline. I can only do that with the original source video which contains my in-camera audio. Only my compound clips have the good audio from my off-camera audio recorder.
Anyway, I gave up looking for a solution and manually did a re-do of all the ratings. (my clips are 20 minute long interviews and only 2 or 3 minutes are going to be used from each clip)
